What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is an umbrella term used to describe a wide variety of massage treatments for stiff, sore, knotted, and otherwise damaged muscles. Remedial massage is tailored to each individual, as opposed to relaxation massages, because it focuses on treating each person’s specific injuries and/or pain.

Remedial massages aim to relieve pain resulting from soft tissue injuries. These injuries can be chronic (having been present for a long time) or acute (newly acquired). The main goal of remedial massage is to not only reduce pain but also locate the original source of the pain, so that your massage therapist can address both the underlying problem and the symptoms it may be causing.

Who is Remedial Massage For?

A remedial massage can be helpful for a wide range of people. Whether you’re a professional athlete, an office worker, a student, or a retiree, there’s likely a remedial massage technique that can help to decrease your pain and improve your quality of life.

As each remedial massage is tailored to each individual, your treatment will be specific to your unique needs. While they provide great benefits to the majority of the population, remedial massages are especially helpful in treating:

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Jaw pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Sports injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Whiplash
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer side effects
  • Diabetes side effects
  • Pregnancy-related pain
  • Postural issues

Your Remedial Massage Questions Answered

What happens before a remedial massage?

Your massage therapist will begin your appointment by asking about your needs and health history to ensure you get the best treatment possible. This discussion helps your massage therapist to understand your pain points, what has and hasn’t worked in the past, and any techniques you may be hesitant about.

In addition to identifying your symptoms and possible causes, they may perform assessments such as range of motion testing, joint testing, and orthopaedic tests to determine the best techniques to use for you.

What do I wear during a remedial massage?

You may or may not need to undress, depending on the technique your massage therapist uses. If you do need to undress, it may only be partially. In every instance you’ll be given privacy to remove your clothing behind a curtain, and cover yourself with a towel before your massage therapist returns and begins your treatment.

What do I do during a remedial massage?

Most patients find remedial massages relaxing, as there isn’t much you need to do! While the majority of the time you can lay back and relax, your massage therapist may occasionally ask you to adjust your position slightly and/or assist you to do so.

Whether you want to chat or not is up to you. Our massage therapists understand remedial massage is a very individualised experience, and so while some prefer to socialise while others prefer silence, you know you’re in charge.

What techniques are used in remedial massage?

Remedial massage techniques vary from person to person depending on their symptoms, the cause of those symptoms, and the benefits they’re aiming to achieve. Some of the main techniques your massage therapist may consider are:

  • Soft tissue release
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Sports massage therapy
  • Active release technique
  • Swedish massage
  • Cupping
  • Needling
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Myofascial release
  • Kneading

What are the benefits of remedial massage?

Remedial massage comes with many health benefits, both physical and mental. A remedial massage will help to stimulate the blood supply and repair damaged muscles, aiding in healing injuries and often improving mental health as a result.

Remedial massages can help to:

  • Decrease pain
  • Increase mobility
  • Lower anxiety and stress
  • Improve circulation
  • Aid in healing
  • Improve the lymphatic system
  • Reduce muscle tension
  • Increase blood flow
  • Improve mood
  • Improve sleep
  • Reduce spasms and cramps
  • Increase energy
